We are excited to announce our first ever live broadcast from the Edinburgh Fringe. You’ll be able to watch us live on YouTube and also Google Hangouts on Air. All you need is a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet and an internet connection. No need to register. No need to book.

The show lasts 45 minutes, and will be available to listen to afterwards as well.
We’ll have an accompanying Twitter conversation and Q & A feeding into the live conversation.
The underlying theme of this broadcast from the heart of the fringe is: Social Media in the Arts and Creative events: how to make it really work.
Is Social Media a largely over-inflated waste of time for theatremakers?Is Facebook a white elephant?Does Tweeting actually make difference to ticket sales?Is LinkedIn a pointless distraction ?Does PinInterest actually create no real interest ?Who’s actually making it work?
